The CD is a fine showcase for his lyrical, fluent playing as well as his composing skills demonstrated in 11 originals.

Whether composing or improvising, Bakir creates fresh sounding, accessible jazz seasoned with nuanced hints of Turkish music.
Owen McNally – Hartford Courant

Bakir’s inspired soloing feeds off of the energy coming from his trio mates, with lines possessing laser-like focus.
Dan Bilawsky – All About Jazz

He is definitely on his way to becoming a creative voice in the world of jazz guitar. John Vincent Barron – Jazz Review.com

Sinan has given us here is a blueprint of his soul, you’ll find eleven songs which embody a variety of shapes and tones. Rob Young – Urbanflux

A nice mixture of slower-paced and faster material, played well. Bakir does indeed seem to be a young musician “on his way” and I will be interested to see where he takes his talent next. Brad Walseth – JazzChicago.net

“On My Way” is a solid debut. It’s easy to put this music on and just let it play.
The voice of the guitar one hears on the opening cut never wavers or falters throughout. Richard Kamins- Courant
